Happy New Year

Here's to more science & surprises in 2019


2018 was a wild ride, from moving the dioramas and finishing exhibits to finally opening the doors to the new Bell Museum on July 14. We are so excited to kick off a yearlong celebration of the Apollo Moon Landing with January’s Space Fest and plenty more science surprises throughout 2019. Thank you for being a special part of making this past year a pretty big deal. Since opening in 2018, we welcomed over:

100,000 visitors

4,200 members

900 youth campers

200 volunteers

100 UMN student staffers

11,000 private event guests, including the weddings of eight happy couples
